iTwin – the company that created the award-winning iTwin Remote File Access solution – unveils iTwin Connect to address the myriad challenges faced by today’s mobile professionals. First, iTwin Connect ensures private and restriction-free browsing and secondly, it provides remote desktop access, remote file access and access to the home/office network (i.e., acting as a personal virtual private network or VPN).
iTwin Connect device consists of two identical halves. To install, simply plug the device into a USB port on the home/office PC. Detach one half of the device, which becomes the iTwin Connect “key”, and carry it along. When on the go, plug this key into a laptop and a secure VPN tunnel is instantly formed to the home/office PC.
Benefits of iTwin Connect include:
The ‘Teleport Me’ feature is especially beneficial for browsing from hotel networks, public WiFi hotspots, or other untrusted broadband connections. It fully prevents anyone from seeing sensitive information such as passwords or tracking browsing activity. Also ‘Teleport Me’ enables access to web sites which are geographically restricted outside one’s home/office area. Thus – regardless of location – one can watch TV shows, check Facebook, and do anything else on the Internet one could normally do at home/office.
According to Lux Anantharaman, CEO of iTwin, “iTwin Connect addresses the challenges mobile professionals face daily. Its high security provides peace of mind, and its simplicity plus comprehensive features help get things done on the go. It is the perfect, no-compromise solution for road warriors, travelers and those that value their online privacy.”
iTwin Connect is available now for $129 at iTwin.com and Amazon.com.
